Feeling Like Myself Again

If you can believe it, right after we got home from vacation, Nolan and I turned right around and went back to Arizona for the funeral of one of my dearest friends. (I will write more on that when I feel up to it.) When we got back, I had 91 items in my Google Reader to catch up on. One of my favorite things out of all 91 was this article by Danielle on Hello Giggles. She talks about something that rings so true to me; feeling like myself again.

I don\'t think I\'ve felt like myself in a really, really long time and I feel like it\'s time for me to get back on track. Danielle talks about getting back in the groove after having a baby, but for me, I haven\'t been in the groove since we found out we couldn\'t have a baby. So whatever you\'re going through, (infertility, pregnancy, motherhood) I think the idea of getting back in the groove and finding yourself again is a worthy goal.

In conjunction with Danielle\'s 3 steps to getting back in the groove, I chose to start today with step #1: Get Ready (Almost) Every Single Day. Today I got up, fed, bathed, and snuggled Nolan, put him down for a nap, exercised, showered, and got ready for the day. I went with red, white, and blue in honor of Veterans Day. And you know what? It feels good to be dressed, ready, and confident for whatever this day brings. Here\'s to Day 1 of feeling like me again.

Happy Friday and a genuine thank you to those who have fought, will fight, and currently fight for the sake of our country and our freedom.
